Bouhys88 believes that the ability to function at higher tidal volumes decreases rapidly with age, making age one of the limiting factors in oxygen transport as well as in cardiac output. Diffusion The rate at which gas passes through the alveolar wall into the capillaries is often decreased by lung disease. There has been some question as to whether the rate of diffusion is a significant limiting factor in ventilation at high levels of performance. Measurements of diffusing capacity during exercise are markedly increased over the resting values, but it is not known whether this is merely a function of increased pulmonary capillary blood flow or an actual physiological alteration in the characteristics of the barriers to the passage of oxygen and carbon dioxide.
